>> a food taster? it is good to be king. well, the daily calle p >> the psychiatry service declined to confirm the presence of the food taster but the senior senator from maine confirmed that remarkable fact.
3:01am
3:02am
>> good morning, everyone, on saturday, march 16. another benghazi bombshell: is the administration telling the survivors to keep quiet? >> the best evidence of what happened is not politicians in washington trying to cover their political behind but the people who lived through it. >> what senator graham found out from those survivors. >> lobsters for lunch? the president sits down for a lobster meal but he could not take a single bite. the taste tester was a no show. >> unbelievable. >> and he could not have blueberry pie. >> you may know what lol means
3:03am
but what about bzy? or fsf? we are putting you to the text test this morning. no cheating. don't google. "fox & friends" starts right now. we will have a friend at the end. >> welcome to "fox & friends" on saturday morning. blueberry pie sounds delicious. >> i didn't realize it was dangerous to be eating. >> but everyone else was eating, so isn't that the test you need? >> if a bunch of senators have not dropped dead you are say. >> but it came from the kitchen of susan collins, she had it prepared specially because it was a lobster special. >> she could be the least sinister of all senators, susan collins. if anyone would poison the president it would not be
3:04am
senator collins. >> now the headlines overnight. we have developed stories including south korea has nuclear drills with a $1 billion plan to benefit up 12s and will explore three new sites for interceptors. two are on the east coast. one is in alaska. >> they misdiagnosed the nature of what was happening in the area in terms of what the sanctioned country determined to acquire the capability would be able to do but it was driven by a broad are ideology that was opposed to missile defense. >>alisyn: the united states will send an additional radar system to japan. >> it is amazing anyone survived a test flight that went wrong leaving three dead and setting a dozen fires on fire after taking
3:05am
off from fort lauderdale executive airport. the pilot tried to return to the airport but hit a warehouse and crashed. >> he was in a dive to the ground. there was an boom and then an explosion. >> the plane just went behind the building and you just hear "boom." >>alisyn: the victims include a father, a son, and a test pilot. >> he is behind bars for working with al qaeda but the terror suspect has been hooked up, with the jail holding the terrorist will bring in an occupational therapist to teach him how to use his new hims and he get as laptop i cell to look over evidence. the lawyers are not finished and they are asking for him to have his sheets changed each day.
3:06am
>> talk about not biting, president obama passing on the lavish lobster lunch with senator republicans because the official taste tester was not there to try it. tell us about this. >> the maine senator, senator collins said the president looked ated food but he passed. everyone joked and said everyone was a tester and if it was poise opened they would have keeled over but he did not bite. who knew the president of the united states as a taster. it is good to be king. >>alisyn: does every president have a taster? >> i don't know. if a bunch of senators are sitting there and eating the same thing, you are safe, no? >> i guess you cannot track where the pie came from. we know from watching tv that poisoning can occur at the dinner table with dignitaries. >> if you regard yourself as so important you cannot eat the same food as a senator because
3:07am
it could be dangerous, what does it say? >>alisyn: it says this is where clayton gets all his knowledge -- from tv. >> a superstar of republicans taking center stage at the second day of a conference. now we have all of the highlights with our reporter. >> this is a very young crowd of conservatives. they are upbeat and a message reinforced by an all-star lineup of republicans. >> it is fashionable in some circles to be pessimistic about america, about conservative solutions and the republican party. i utterly reject pessimism. we may not have carried on november 7 but we have not lost the country we love and we have not lost our way. >> we are not hiding behind our beliefs. a budget is more than a list of
3:08am
numbers, it is an expression of our philosophy. in our budget, we draw a sharp contrast with the left. it says to the people in unmistakable terms, they are the party of shared hardship. we are the party of equal opportunity. >> our core principles, greater individual responsibility, more personal freedoms, smaller and more effective government, are the only principles that can office our children the full measure of their potential. i am here to tell you there is no "us" or "them." the face of the republican party needs to be the face of every american. we need to be the party of inclusion and acceptance. >> we are run by either very foolish or very stupid people. what is going on in this country is unbelievable. our country is a total mess. it is a total and complete mess.
3:09am
what we need is leadership. >> on deck today is a superstar lineup of conservatives including dr. carson, texas senator ted cruz and sarah palin. guys, i don't want to alarm the general population but this was a zombie outbreak at cpac. i snapped a few photos of what they call obama zombies. the motto is they come first if your brains and then they come from your balance. >>alisyn: terrifying. glad you survived. >> the best dressed zombies i have ever seen. very well dressed. >> one of the questions from cpac, are there young fresh faces like the zombies. could they revitalize the republican party as a result of putting forth the younger and fresh faces at the cpac conference? >> you will is all about opportunity. it is a young crowd.
3:10am
it has to do with the president, though. democrats control the white house and the senate and the question is, when they stumble, will republicans be there to take advantage of that and this is evidence that the president has overreached and the sequester tell actually in the end hurt him. he went too far. we had a conversation with charles last night who made that point. here is charles krauthammer. >> there is a loss of despair among the conservatives and republicans that the other party, the party of the future, the demographics are running against us. this is not true. they are a party on the wrong side of the country. they had a strong candidate. we had a relatively weak candidate. as long as they nurture the young leaders coming up and stick to their principles, we have a very good chance. >>alisyn: i wish charles named names. i am assuming he is referring to
3:11am
marco rubio and jindal and rand paul spoke, and people have contrasted how different that message could be from marco rubio. i assume that is who charles krauthammer is talking about. >> that is right and i add ted cruz and jindal but having just been there and i don't know if this is significant or real but rand paul was the star according to the young people i talked to. the" stand with rand" sticker was the most popular thing there. >> all reading said that that speech is the one that galvanized the most individuals. >> and the filibuster, the fact that he stood for 11 1/2 hours, or so, in the well of the senate to get answers on the drone program, that really resonated with a lot of people. >> are the republicans becoming more isolationist? >> i don't think they are but they have real concerns about
3:12am
the president's policies and their effect on the civil liberties of america, the non-crazy libertarian wing of the party, i think, they are growing stronger. >>alisyn: rick knows how to filibuster. rick: that is so true. but they only give me 20 seconds. i tweeted you last night because i know you love winter. we are stuck. we are stuck in winter. there is no change to this pattern. i know we would like to think it is spring and spring happens officially on wednesday but there is no real sign. sorry to say that. these temperatures that are remaining well we low average hold on for it looks like about the next week and a half to two weeks. in the south you have nice temperatures. it feels like spring. this weekend across areas of the
3:13am
deep south it is looking spectacular. to the north we have rain and snow on northern side of this and cutting across michigan that will dive through the northeast and we have rain this afternoon that could become severe across carolinas. across the west we have cloud cover but it is this storm here that is moving into the pacific northwest that becomes a monday and tuesday storm across the northern plains and across the east. that is going to include more snow. look what happens in the northeast, the snow moves across pennsylvania throughout the afternoon and by 4:00 today, there will be snow from new york city to around the philadelphia area. it is rain to the south of that. it will snow for a few hours but not cold enough to see accumulating snow. obviously this time of year especially on st. patrick's day with all of the parades you may like it to be spring but it will not happen. you can see it is cold across that area today. tomorrow remains cold but the south is a great weekend in store. guys? >> thank you, rick.
3:14am
>> another benghazi bombshell. did the obama administration tell survivors to keep quiet? that is what a senator is claiming and colonel west will weigh in on that. >> and disgraced new york congressman anthony weiner may not be done yet. [ male announcer ] what are happy kids made of? bikes and balloons, wholesome noodles on spoons. a kite, a breeze, a dunk of grilled cheese. catches and throws, and spaghettio's.
3:15am

3:16am
3:17am
>> i have had contact with some of the survivors. their story is chilling. they are afraid to tell it. it is possibility they come forward to tell their story. the best evidence of what happened in benghazi is not a bunch of politicians in washington trying to cover their political behind but those who lived through it.
3:18am
i will do everything i can to get them before the congress and the american people so we can learn what happened in benghazi. >> are the survivors back on the job? >> some are back working for the government. some are still injured. the bottom line is, they feel they cannot come forward. they have been told to be quiet. at the end of the day we can fought let this administration or any other administration get away with hiding from the american people and the congress, people would were there in real time to tell the story. >> that was senator graham of south carolina speaking out on the biggest of all benghazi bombshell. >>alisyn: why were survivors of the attack that left four americans dead in libya told to keep quiet by the administration if that is what happened. we are joined by colonel west. cornell, what do you make of what senator graham said? by the way, bret baier pressed him to say what did they tell
3:19am
you and senator graham did not answer that. what do you make of what he is saying? >> this cannot be the new normal, the fact we have an ambassador killed six months ago and, also, two former navy seals and another state department worker in benghazi. the most important thing we have to realize is our men and women that we send on foreign shores to never be left behind on any battlefield and further our wounded individuals can not be treated like lepers. frank wolf, from virginia, who was asking for a bipartisan commission to look at the issue sent a letter talking about the 50 survives that came from the incident and he had information about seven individuals who were walter reed medical center so that means if you are there you you are possibly an amputee. the american people should have known about there and for the
3:20am
president talking about transparency we are not seeing it. >> what do you make about what charles krauthammer say, that the white house hopes this will go away, we have a long enough time between when this happened and when hillary clinton gave her testimony and the press is not on this. no one else in the news is talking about benghazi attacks. do you agree if. >> that is an important aspect. we know the president has the behind closed door meetings with media outlets and this is could be the talking point he gave to stay away from the issue. they wanted to evade this issue prior to the election but it is terrible. we do not treat our men and women who are keeping us safe and that includes state department imblowees. >> if the allegations of senator graham are true and the white house or someone pushed the survivors to keep quiet, is that legal?
3:21am
doesn't that violate whistle blower statute? is that a criminal offense? >> i am sure it has to be a criminal offense but it is morale wrong. that is not how we treat people. if this is about political gain that is more unconscionable. as i said not going this cannot be the new normal we try to hide the truth from the american people going back to susan rice on said this was the result of a video. this was a terrorist attack. the individuals that survived the terrorist attack in benghazi we should celebrate them and thank them for their service. we should not forget what happened. >>alisyn: on a different topic can we talk what we should do about our brave men and women in the service struggling to pay their tuition with the sequester
3:22am
cuts? >> i cannot understand the leadership by fearmongerring and intimidation and scare tactics coming from the white house regarding sequestration. it is widely phone that you have $200 billion to $300 billion in redundant programs to cut. there are 1,700 recommendations to give up $67 billion of immediate savings. why do we look to the men and women who have been out there who earned the benefits and saying we are going to cut those backs in it is about the administration trying to increase the level of pain as a political point. we should never use our men and women as political pawns. >>clayton: if one person who will get up early on a saturday morning it is a colonel. nice to see you, colonel. >> happy st. patrick's day. >> america's most hated mother
3:23am
offered big bucks but this is not if her story but it is to keep her quiet. >>alisyn: on lessons we can learn from pope benedict. for the airport, how much traffic there is, and can have your boarding pass ready. the droid razr maxx hd by motorola. droid-smart. droid-powerful. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally.
3:24am
3:25am
the longest 4g lte battery in a razr thin profile. with 32 hours of battery life that turns an all-nighter, into a two-nighter. the droid razr maxx hd by motorola. droid-endurance. droid-powerful. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves tohop online with her debit ca and so does bill, an identity thf who stole mary's identity, took over her bank accountand stole her hard-earned money. unfortunately, millions of ericans just like you learn misplaced information to wreak havoc on your life. this is identity theft and no one helps stop it better than lifelock. if mary had lifelock's bank account alerts, she would have been notified in time to help stop it. lifelock has the most protection available,y theft guarding your social security number, your money, your credit, even the eity in your home.
3:26am
you even get a $1 million service guarantee. that's security no one can bt. [♪...] [click click] [♪...] >> a government spy tactic being shot down. a california judge rules the file sent letters to company demanding members' personal information but it is unconstitutional. they contain gag orders and the court says that forts companies to keep the letters secret does violate the constitution. >> he resigned in disgrace after sending racy photos to women he met online but democratic congressman anthony weiner could be eyeing a comeback the he
3:27am
spent $130,000 on two polls to see what voters thought of another run for office. no word on the verdict. >>alisyn: pope benedict's announcement of the resignation surprised the world but there are thousands of professionals and they face a similar decision when you have a job for life, with no official retirement age, how do you know when it is time to go? we will scwa our business reporter. >> great to see you i believe we can take a look at the vatican. here is our new pope, who is meeting members of the press. this is live. >> if for pope benedict, though, for recognizing his own capacity and his own restraints and boundaries saying "enough is enough." for all of us, how do we figure
3:28am
that out on our own? the main thing is, and i hate to sound like a business reporter, the question is, do you have enough money? this is obviously a tough question. it is a great question, too, and the best part is people in general are living longer. if you go online there are all kinds of retirement calculators you can plug in your circumstance and figure out how much money you need a year in retirement. second, how much money do you need to save right now and at what rate of investment return ideally you need to earn to be able to live the best quality of life you can while retired. >>alisyn: you need to run the numbers and you need specific information how much money you need and what your costs are. most of us, unlike pope francis, do not take a vow of property. also, you say that you need to recognize it is not just money but your way of life and whether your job is fulfilling.
3:29am
>> that is an important question, are you thinking, how will i get my next promotion or trying to figure out how to budget enough time for a vacation? what are you interested in? if there are hobbs or interests, traveling, that you have not done yet and you are interested in doing, and you have planned for it continually, by all means, that is a strong sign it is time to cut back the hours. >> also, of course, because we are not the pontiff, because we don't have an obvious higher calling you need to think about your higher calling. >> that is an important point, too, if you look at the bill gates example of microsoft, granted we do not have $1 billion to invest in trying to rid the world of malaria or set up an amazing charity but small steps are huge to get involved in a charity or if you have a dream job. my dad had a passion for the clarinet so he no longer
3:30am
practices as a doctor but plays in community orchestras and in bans and is happy playing in a band making little money. he knew bringing up a family he needing a more meaningful income so that has been exciting. >>alisyn: that is great, at 70 i will start a rock band. i will for the that led. >> the best thing to lead if your kids is no debt so plan accordingly financially. >>alisyn: than you, lori, for coming in early with tips for us. >> the country is $17 trillion in debt. should we promote food stamps in mexico? democrats seem to think so. we will explain that. they are going bald for a great cause, to help kids with cancer. this morning, they are doing it on our plaza. >> i celebrate st. patrick's day but why drink. irish people have hard enough
3:31am
time when they are sober. [ phil ] when you have joint pain and stiffness... accomplishing even little things can become major victories. i'm phil mickelson, pro golfer. when i was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, my rheumatologist prescribed enbrel for my pain and stiffness, and to help stop joint damage.
3:32am

[ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biologic medicine prescribed by rheumatologists.
3:33am
3:34am
3:35am
>> here is your shot of the morning, st. patrick's day pets all dressed up, whether it is your dog, cat, rabbit. what do you find a hat that small? you can e-mail us your pet pictures or tweet us. send in your pet photos this morning. tucker and ali, the more ridiculous, the better, right? >> that is the only criteria. >>alisyn: they need to wear sunglasses. while we are celebrating st. patrick's day we are also celebrating a foundation named by combining st. patrick's and bald raising money for childhood cancer search while volunteers shake their heads for the cause. we are joined by the co-founder of the foundation and the winestein family. >>alisyn: explain to us the thinking and the motivation for
3:36am
st. bald day. >> it was not an einstein moment but we are on the deck in july of 1999 and two friends after having played a bad game of golf had big heads of hair and we said we will turn our party into something productive rather than st. patrick and we try to get 17 guys at the time, there were not so company females willing to shake and we raised $17,000 for childhood cancer research. fast forward, we raised $33.5 million last year and to date we are at $170 million. >>alisyn: my gosh! >> it all goes to childhood cancer research. we not into helping families, so to speak but we helped them by trying to change what happens in the research. >> it is hard to thing of a better cause than that. so when people shave they become walking advertisements for the cause. >> i am the foster child when you look at my big head of hair
3:37am
compared to yours. it is a really solidarity with the kids who are going through chemo. >>alisyn: christie, thank you for coming out. tell us about this? >> mikey is seven. he was diagnosed when he was just under three years old with unidentifiable brain tumor coat his brain and spine. we we have had three years of chemo since then and we just learned he has had a recurrence and there is growth again so we are exploring more treatment options. >>alisyn: so sorry to hear that. tell us what this means? >> this foundation...when mike was first diagnosed i was approached by a girl i used to babysit for who shaved her head each year. she asked if they could honor mike at a local event. we were more than thrilled to do it. we raised a good amount of
3:38am
money. three months later, we walked into mikey's appointment at sloan-kettering and his doctor came out and was so excited to tell us that he received a grant from the foundation so we were so excited to know that work we did with the foundation really went to work on such a personal level right away. it was amazing. because we saw it work like that, we have been such huge fans of st. baldridge. when we run the event each year and participate in the events i tell everyone, every single dollar donated to st. baldridge is another beacon hope for families like ours. there is no better way to make any donation than to possibly save the lives of kids. >>alisyn: we will try to help you today and see how many heads we can shake on the plaza. tucker, we will do that in a
3:39am
couple of hours. i will shave your head, tucker. now, inside to clayton. >>clayton: i want to see that on you, by the way. we have headlines: shocking details of the pilots of the air france plane that crashed nearly four years ago. the report reveals that the captain of that flight only had one hour of sleep and the co-pilots were also exhausted after a wild night in rio. the captain was on a rest break when the air bus flew straight into a tropical storm if june of 2009 and he responded to the co-pilot call for help they were too average stated to communicate what was wrong and the plane plunged into the atlantic ocean killing all passengers. air plans and air bus are under investigation for alleged manslaughter. >> our country is more than $16 trillion in debt but the senate
3:40am
democrats have stopped an effort to block funds for a food stamp promotion partnership with mexico. democrats on the senate budget committee rejected a proposal to stop funding for projects like this in a 12-10 part line vote and senator senator sessions is outraged saying contrary to sound policy the united states is spending money advertising food stamp benefits in foreign consulates. the agriculture department is defending the program. >> man wanted to make sure that casey anthony or anyone else doesn't make a dime off of her story. he wants to pay her $10,000 to keep quiet for life. he doesn't want to make a movie county put her on tv or write a book, he doesn't want anyone to profit from her story. the florida woman was accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter in 2008 but found not guilty. >> naps are not just for kids. a growing number of companies now offer nap time for employees
3:41am
ali has been doing it on her own for years. a new jersey business has a nap room for workers to take time out. health experts say it is a good idea because fatigue is weighing on workers' help and product it. we have a nap room in our green room! you need something furry. >> what was that? >> maybe a little sheep. >> maybe it was someone's coat? >> risk likes to catch a nap from time to time... >> sure, clayton you owe someone a dry cleaning bill. rick: you will need the coats, i wish i could say spring was here across the north but it is not. there is no sign of it. in the south it is over. on the weather maps, you can see
3:42am
the little bit of pink across north dakota and minnesota, that is the next batch of cold air which certainly is solidly if place across the northern tier. today's forecast will show snow showers across pennsylvania and upstate new york and new york city and the jersey shoreline we will see snow flurries with rain toward washington, dc, and down to the southeast, a spectacular day. it does not get any nicer than this, spring in the south is absolutely spectacular and you have it today and for were of tomorrow. back to you. >>alisyn: there has always been a language bearer between parents and teenagers but now it is worse than ever with a if you language that is the language of text. text talk. you probably -- you have teens. do they text? >> they document i love to text because i keep in touch with them and i do not allow them to

for current and former military members and their families. get advice from the people who share your values. for our free usaa retirement guide, call 877-242-usaa. >>clayton: it is called thants bloomberg bill referring to an attempt to ban extra large sugar drinks in the city. our guest came up with legislation that passed overwhelmingly in mississippi and could ban towns from banning food based on nutritional information. the mississippi state senator joins us now with more on this. nice to see you, tony. >> thank you for having me. >> why did you decide to pass this bill? >> this is more about the government interference in the
3:49am
industry. we feel like if we are going to create regulation that will be directed to a particular industry, the state should reserve that right and not allow individual municipalities from being able to do this. >> specifically, it would bar any mayor in mississippi from randomly deciding to ban something but bans it on a state level, rather than individually. >> absolutely. we felt you would have a hodgepodge of different regulations across the state. if you have multiple restaurants you would have different regulations depending on the city and it would be better if commerce in our state and be more business friendly having the legislature reserve the right to mandate any regulations. >> as the bill passed, you know, now, that the mayor bloomberg responded to this bill being called the antiblockberg bill on
3:50am
the radio. >> you have to love it, the state with the highest rate of oh boast they pass a law that says you cannot do anything. life expectancy in that part of the country is 20 years lower than in our country. >> does the mayor have a point in. >> i am not sure where that stat came from. i cannot debate that. the statistics show we are the most obese state in the nation but the first lady was here celebrating our school initiative that shows that the childhood obesity rate in mississippi has decreased 13 percent. something is being done right without the government. >> some argue also that the government has a right to protect our citizens and if mississippi is the fattest state in the country does the government have a right to the do something? >> i believe there is a place for government to help us, through policy. to go after one industry and the
3:51am
food service industry and say can you not get a bill gulp, i don't think that will make any impact. the flaw in the reasoning is i like to go to instant and only buy a 16-ounce drink but who says i cannot buy two or three the. >> it seems like a hodgepodge and random so it seems that is why it is stalled. >> thank you, tony smith, who put forward this antibloomberg bill. >> first they said it was hundreds but it was actually thousands of illegal immigrants released from jail. should the criminals have been allowed to walk? arthur has something to say about this. keep us out of your punch line, jay leno underfire for speaking the truth about nbc rating. look what mommy is having.

missiles, likely a response to ongoing united states and south korea drills. the united states will explore three new sites for ground-based interceptors two on the east code and another in alaska. the obama administration rejected a plan to add more intercepters if alaska initially. >> they misdiagnosed, i think, the nature of what was happening in the region in terms of what the sanctioned country determined to acquire the capability would be able to do but it was driven by a broader ideology that was opposed to missile defense. >>alisyn: the united states will send an additional radar system to japan. amazing anyone survived this, a test flight goes wrong leaving three people dead and send setting a dozen cars on fire. it took off and immediately had trouble and crashed in a parking

4:09am
from any of the survives? why not hear from the press? we only hear from hillary clinton and high level officials, why have we not heard from the survivors who were there at the consulate when this unfolded? this only we could have an answer. >> we don't know how many survivors there are. be clear on that. there are reports the number is seven to 15 but now we learn through senator graham of south carolina, he says that he has spoken to a number of the survivors and some of them told him directly that they have been instructed, presumably by the white house, not to talk about what happened at benghazi. if this is true, this is legitimately a bombshell. i believe it is probably violating whistle blower statutes allowing federal employees to tell the truth if there is wrong doing and it could be a crime. this is a big deal. >>alisyn: on the flip side, follow is reporting there were 37 personnel in benghazi on the night of 9/11 and some of them,
4:10am
a large portion, were c.i.a. who as we know, the c.i.a. doesn't always come out and talk about what they are doing or admit they were there. >> i meant to say people would were wounded. we don't know how many were wounded at benghazi. >>alisyn: senator graham says he thinks this could be ground for more subpoenas. >> i will continue to make life difficult in the senate and i am begging my house of representatives colleagues, if they will not voluntarily release the names of the survivors to the congress for appropriate interviews to get to the bottom of what happened at benghazi, you subpoena them. we are not going to cover up a failed foreign policy episode and read in the "new york times" all of the successes of the obama administration. you cannot have a country where the commander in chief gets to celebrate the successes and hide failures. >> charles krauthammer broke it down into three sections on why he thinks the obama
4:11am
administration wants this to go away. he points out the obama administration has been dragging its feet, hoping that this will go away and because the mainstream media is not talking. listen to charles. >> the administration wants to make a speech on gun control, it brings in the parents of newtown, not that you will get new information but you get the drama and the pain of those who suffered. what they want in a way is to deny that and to is the people, to have them in the shadows an abstract story about an event that happened far away. the dead are dead they don't want people out there telling a story that would drama ties the importance and meaning of a new who appeared to be absent that night. >> the mainstream media is not cover the story and they waited months before we had secretary of state, hillary clinton give
4:12am
testimony. >> if you wind up with a benghazi survivor on television like we have on fox saying i was told by the white house not to talk about what happened there, that will be a scandal. there is no ignoring that. >>clayton: they do not want a face to this. if you have a survivor face, survivor of the benghazi attack on television, that put as face with a story and for the membership it -- american people it withs more real. >> jake carney has said under no sicks did the white house try to silence anyone. we will continue to explore that for the rest of the program. we will bring in rick to tell us about the weather around the country. rick: if you are in the south it is spectacular. it doesn't get better than mid-70's for highs across the south in the spring, a beautiful time. across the not, not is much. this patterns looks like we will be stuck. we have snow which is heavy at

4:21am
senator feinstein snows she doesn't have the votes. why are they wasting time and money on this? we know that handguns, illegal handguns are the problem. i have statistics from the uniform crime report showing 232 homicides with rifles last year in 2011 and not half of those are what they call assault weapons. we have 6,220 homicides with handguns. why are they focusing on assault rifles when handguns is a problem and it is the illegals. >> because of newtown and we know this lanza goes to the show with the rifle and has all the 30 round magazines and does not pull out a handgun until the end when he shoots himself and he shoots everyone else with an assault rifle. that is why. waking up in fill this morning, foes are dealing with murder overnight and illegal handguns.

why are they ignoring the elephant in the room? what can they to do go after these? >> i don't think they want to do something. if they did, they would go after the illegal guns. i don't hear one person talking about minimum mandatory sentencing for anyone using the gun. all they want to do is penalize the legal gun owners. the democrats want to focus on the legal gun owners. we need to go after the bad guys. there are three things to do to limit the gun violence. one, we need back ground checks. i am for that 100 percent. no one should be able to go in and buy a gun. second, effective law enforcement, stop and frisk. we reduced crime in new york city. third, minimum mandatory sentencing. that is what we need. >>clayton: harry, always great to see you. >> last weekend on vacation i met people from nashville that

4:47am
staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine,

4:50am
what is the point of the trip to israel? >> it is more symbolic than anything. i don't believe anyone on this side or that side thinks anything significant is going do come out of the trip. i believe clearly the iranians will watch everything that happens. the president had a television interview two days ago in israel referring to the prime minister as if they were close friends and that sets the stage for the relationship. at the end of the day i help they have closed door sessions with serious discussions about what happens if the red line is hit. i don't think the president will tell the public what he will do. tush turk the israelis are clean to get assurance from the obama administration if the iranians get to a point we will react militarily? >>guest: we know the military has been told to draw up plans and that is a good sign but tucker, there is a dynamic here which not only this president

but if romney won, romney would be dealing with, the american public is tired war. i'm tired of war. my son is about to go back to the fourth tour overseas and i don't think this president or, again, if it were romney, wants the debate and discussion in front of the american public about the use of military force against iran we understand what the threats are, what the problems are, the israelis understand, the general american public doesn't understand, i don't believe, what the threats are that are posed by the iranians with the neck weapon and if we did a poll on how many americans support united states military action against iran if whatever reason i don't think the numbers are favorable. >>tucker: do you think the president understands the threat posed by a nucleared arm iran? >>guest: great question. he is getting there. it is taking a while to get it but i believe we are at the point where the president understands what we are dealing

5:08am
back the white house and get the senate and put in place conservative principles. >> in a concession speech perhaps you acknowledge mistakes, what mistakes is he talking about specifically that republican party needs to address? >> there has been so many post-mortems it because not so much how the republicans failed it is how affected the democrats were in getting out the vote with the most advanced scientific campaign of identifying their voters and the most incredible strategy of getting the voters to the poll and not letting anything keep them from voting. not to say there were not mistakes in the republican message, there were times mitt romney should have brought up benghazi and pressed hard but he stepped away from it. those are easy things for me to say. he had to make the decisions. he ran the campaign and he won the nomination. i don't think it is healthy to second-guess everything the mitt romney campaign did because i don't think they were a big failure so much as they were
5:09am
just outmanned by an amazing and extraordinary unprecedented machine. >> is it helpful to identify what went wrong when the military has an operation, even when it goes right there is always a post-mortem. >>governor huckabee: there is always analysis and one is the democrats are way ahead of the republican in terms of using social media or technology to do the things that cause voters to show up. can you have the greatest message in the world, the most wonderful television ads but today it is the kind of ability to take social media and use that from the high-tech to the high touch to borrow a phrase from a book, and to make that turn into votes. that is what you have to do. >>alisyn: senator graham is talking about or determined and spoken to survives of benghazi and he says they told him they have been told to be quiet. he didn't say who told them or did he tell them, or did he say
5:10am
what they can't say. what are they keeping secret? here is senator graham. >> their story is chilling. they feel afraid to tell it. it is important they come forward to tell their story. the best evidence of what happened in benghazi is not a bunch of politicians in washington trying to cover their political [blank] but they feel that they cannot come forward and they have been told to be quiet and at the end of the day we cannot let this administration or any other administration get away with hiding from the american people and the congress, people who were there in real time to tell the story. >>alisyn: was he talking about the c.i.a.? or the president? hung hung we -- >>governor huckabee: we don't know because senator graham was going through a change of voice. the benghazi story has been covered up from the beginning and here we are going into seven months later and still it is
5:11am
covered up. there will come a time the survivors will be brought to congress, they will testify under oath in an open hearing and it is not going to be any better what they say because the truth is going to be the truth what they speak today or in six months and it will not be a pleasant day for the white house >> we have a lot of statues on the book that protect or design to protect whistle blowers and they have a legal right to tell the public about a wrongdoing. if it turns out these guys were somehow pushed to keep information secret, would that be a violation of law? >>governor huckabee: it would seem clear, probably on the guarantee up to a huge lawsuit with damages to be paid to the people who were told to shut up. you cannot tell a federal employee to shut up because he says something that could be politically embarrassing. >> the main street media has not
5:12am
covered the benghazi attack and charles krauthammer argues because there is not a public face on this, ambassador stevens was killed and others, as well, but there is no public face on the tragedy, this are no survivors that came forward and when you put the face on it the administration would be scared of having a person on camera talking about that day. what do you say? >>governor huckabee: there is a point. but there has been the public face of the mother of one who was killed. you had the families talk originally. the only people who even get any air time is fox news. for the most part, this story was left covered up and left alone by the mainstream media. when hillary clinton went to testify, with all due respect, she said what difference does it make to say, well, it is too late, they are dead, that is lie saying there is a murder, the person is dead association why prosecute or investigate? that is the most ridiculous
5:13am

access to the information about the operations of the government we pay for. james madison was a great proponent of knowledge governing our affairs and the people gaining access to information. he has a great quote and he said, a popular government without popular information or at least the means to acquire it is but a proceed -- prologue to our government. if no one knows how $4 trillion is year is spent and we do not know how it is spent as citizens, then we have a problem. a law was passed called the freedom of information act. it allows groups to ask for information from the federal government and if they do not get it they can sue in court.
5:20am
there are similar laws in states all over the country. anyone listening to me or watching me can figure out what is going on in their local community or their state or at the federal level just the way we can at judicial want. >>alisyn: that is a great point. the freedom of information act we know how investigative journalists have used it since 1967 but individual citizens can, as well, and that said, is it tough to use the freedom of information act? is it a bureaucratic problem or is it easy for individual citizens to navigate their way through? >> i thank the lord we have great lawyers on staff that allow us to navigate the waters of the freedom of information act. this administration particularly is hostile to transparency. the president has promised the most transparent administration in history but we have had to sue them over hundred times to get access to basic information. we have a crisis of transparency

5:48am
reaction having been hell hostage by the government? >>guest: if it were not so dramatic what going on in iran and what went on it who are laughable. in two respects the movie actually doesn't portray how cruel it was, in one respect it only had brief mentions of my experience and the expense of my fellow captives. the movie was not about us. also, too, it has a brief description of just the cruelness of the revolution in iran and the way that the new revolutionary leaders reacted against the iranian people. >> and the torture that was unreported we saw some of it in the movie where budget were put over the heads thought to be shot and mental torture by all accounts so, should the iranian government, perhaps, be the ones who are giving up the
5:49am
compensation for the way you were treated? >> one thing that happened as a result of our release was the u.s. government signed an agreement saying that we would not be able to sue iran or the iranian government. that was part of the accord. the courts have ruled that the u.s. government can abrogate the agreement any time but the state department and the justice department have said they wanted to maintain the agreements so a number our friends have been looking for ways to compensate us without charging it to the taxpayers. the latestest by some in 9 legislature has been to attack those companies and individuals we who are dealing illegally with iran and to double the sanctions in terms of of money that is collected, the fines and set up a fund to compensate the americans who were held hostage. >>clayton: you were given
5:50am
$22,000 each in compensation, five years after you were released. this would raise that compensation to about $4 million per hostage for everything you went through for those many, many months. your response, though, we didn't get your response to the idea that the director should be hanged as a result of putting forth this movie and bringing attention to a story that many americans didn't know until this year. >>guest: that obviously is a misguided reaction on the part of the iranians. certainly, the director is not an iranian so he is not committed treason but he just exposing, really, what happened both in terms of the revolution, treatment of us, but, especially the ordeal, really, that my since friends went through as they were hiding from iranian government officials and iranian revolutionary guards and how the canadians and mendez were able

6:10am
haven't we heard from the people who were there on the ground, who were wounded. senator graham says he's spoken to them and he has troubling news, listen. >> the best evidence of what happened in benghazi is not a bunch of politicians in washington trying to cover their political (bleep), it's the people who lived through the debacle. the story of an administration deaf and blind to the reality of what people were living with every day in libya. don't blame the soldier when he's going outside the wire to do his job. blame the commander who creates the bad environment for the soldier. the person i blame is not chris stevens, i blame the president of the united states. >> clayton: now, if this turns out to be true, that survivors of benghazi were pushed by someone in the the executive branch not to talk, that would not only constitute a coverup and a scandal, it might be a violation of whistleblower law. we asked former congressman and lt. colonel allen west
6:11am
about this earlier this morning and here is what he said. >> i'm sure that it has to be a criminal offense when you talk about whistleblower stat status, but it's morally wrong. and if it's for political gain, it's unconscionable. as i said in the beginning, this cannot be new normal, we try to hide this from the american back going back to susan rice going on the morning showers and tried to make this an incident, some obscure video. >> alisyn: jay carney was asked about this at one of the press hearings and he said that he doesn't know anything about this and that he does not believe that anybody in the white house would ever have told them to keep the story quiet. we now know there were 37 personnel in benghazi on the day of the attack. they were mostly cia and it's possible they don't talk about, didn't want to reveal that they were there or
6:12am
confirm they were there or talk about what they were doing. but we need to get answer if in fact some of the people say they were forbidden from talking. and lindsey graham will be huckabee's guest. >> tucker: this ball is rolling and once a senator alleges some of this. i think some of them will be subpoenas, and wind up on television and hopefully some on this network. and there's no stopping. >> clayton: he says he'll be a pain in the senate's side. >> tucker: wouldn't want him after you. >> clayton: and here is rick with the forecast. >> rick: a really cold morning, and these temps today are around 25 degrees below your typicals for this time of year. it's very warm across the south. a spectacular day across parts of the southeast, temps in the 70's, hey, nick, there we go. it's moving now. and just had to say your name,

6:28am
leads to infection, it's not zero, but-- >> it's not zero as the story illustrates. what other diseases are spread rare those those cases may be by organ transplant. >> the most common thing, somehow a bacteria would get in there. you can see viruses, you can see hepatitis. rarely you could see hiv. again though, you know, you're talking about a situation, tucker, somebody needs an emergency organ, so, you really can't stop to screen the organ. >> tucker: by rarely, context, what does it mean, how often. >> someone's in a car accident, you get an organ harvested want to bring a heart, kidney or liver, better screen that liver before i give it to them, you have up to 12 hours maximum and a lot of things won't show up that early. rabies you wouldn't have been able to screen by screening the organ this way, but they've got to do a vig lent test of hepatitis and hiv and that's what we do and do with the blood supply, too, a one in a million chance and millions are donating blood. one in a million chance of
6:29am
getting hiv or hepatitis from blood. rabies incredibly rare that way. but with blood transfusion there's a risk of bacteria. >> alisyn: scary stuff because it's out of your control. you go into the hospital and praying for a good outcome with a blood transfusion or organ donation and sounds like there's nothing we can do about it because time is of the essence. >> and unpack the statistics and don't want the viewers to be afraid of in. a huge majority of time you get the organ you need or a tissue from a cadaver and great screening goes on. this is a message to hype up the screening more. it does not mean that this is happening very frequently. >> alisyn: good to know. dr. marc siegel. >> great to see you. >> alisyn: we've all had this done to us before, a co-worker begs you to buy their daughter's girl scout cookies like brian kilmeade does to us. one mom has just been fired for doing this.
